This course explores the ecology and taxonomy of the aquatic
insects. An intensive course, it is designed to provide a thorough taxonomic
knowledge, and basic understanding of the biology and ecology of the aquatic
insects for students in ecology, fisheries and entomology. Lectures focus
on ecology; labs on taxonomy. A student collection will be required.
Final course grade will be based:
50% on lecture material (mid-term and final exam)
20% on lab taxonomic ID exams, and
30% on a required student collection.
